Room 3041
Duke Law School


The Program in Public Law hosts a distinguished group of panelists as they discuss the soundness and implications of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in McDonald v. City of Chicago. In McDonald, the Court held that the Second Amendment is incorporated into Section One of the Fourteenth Amendment and therefore binds state and local governments to the same extent that it binds the federal government.
